Using Film with Poetry: A Unit Approach.
Lemley, Raymond E.
Connecticut English Journal, v3 n1 p3-10 F 1970
Four short, inexpensive films used in conjunction with specific poems provide the basis for individual lessons or a single unit whose theme explicates man and his relationship to other men. "Two Castles," a simple film depicting the foolhardiness of pride is recommended for use in teaching an introductory unit on poetry. "The Wall," a film presenting different men's reactions to obstacles, is suggested to accompany Frost's "Mending Wall." Norman McLaren's "Neighbors," an allegorical film on man's inhumanity to man, is suitable for use with several poems. The final film, "Vivre," a presentation of the horrors of war, is recommended because of the strong reactions which it elicits from student audiences. (DD)
